I sync all my stuff with Outlook...that's the easiest way I've found.

I install the trial of SPB Backup before I flash my ROM, then backup what I need, then restore it on the new one. I like it because it's faster than syncing my contacts and SPB maintains the individuality of them so when I sync with Exchange it doesn't duplicate them all like PIM did.

i guess i could use the sprite backup image of my mogul and ask it to only restore contacts, but i was hoping for an easier way just using bluetooth somehow....

copy PIM.vol from main directory in Mogul, use resco explorer or total commander and paste over PIM.vol in main directory on TP, soft reset, BAM all contacts ready to go!

Re: what's the easiest fastest way to transfer contacts from mogul to tp?

You could:

use outlook
use Dashwire
use mail2web free exchange server account
PIM backup

I think the fastest and safest way would be mail2web - create the account, add the server to the mogul, wait for it to sync, then add to the touch pro and wait a bit more. Dashwire is about the same, but it takes longer in my experience for the initial sync on both devices.

Outlook is a surefire method - I personally hate activesync and everything linked to it, but assuming nothing goes massively wrong it should work great.

PIM backup would be the best, fastest, and simplest method, but I don't know what version of WM is on you mogul. If it's different from Wm6.1 there could be a difference in how the databases are ordered and it will not restore correctly on the touch pro.

You could use bluetooth, but last time I tried that I had to send each contact individually. Huge time waster.

Just my 2 cents.
